Broun 238 will remain open during the Fall 2017 semester. The main front entrance to Broun Hall (across from Foy to the east) will be closed during the renovation. Access to 238 Broun Hall for Senate and General Faculty meetings will be through the south side of the building concourse between Thach Hall and Broun Hall with signs indicating the entrances.

Shortly after 3 p.m. the single door (door faces east) with the ramp to the south side concourse
can be propped open.
